Martha s Vineyard International Film Festival


Combining the laidback beach style of the island of Martha’s Vineyard with the buzz and excitement of a festival celebrating films from across the globe - The Martha’s Vineyard International Film Festival is an amazing experience not to be missed.

Four days filled with the best feature and short films from top-notch festivals such as Sundance, Berlin and Cannes (with a few undiscovered gems thrown in!), great evening events, provocative forums and live world music - all within the ‘Walking Festival District’. And don’t forget – Martha’s Vineyard has some of the most beautiful beaches in America.

The recurring theme of the annual Martha's Vineyard International Film Festival is "Other Places"; the festival's purpose is to encourage attendees to think broadly (about how huge the world of film is) and deeply (about the universal concerns and desires that unite all people). About 90% of all film selections are non-US productions, helping to fulfill the festival mission of promoting cross-cultural understanding through film.

The International Film Festival is produced by the Martha's Vineyard Film Society, a 501 c3 non-profit corporation. Our festival is completely run by volunteers and greatly appreciates your support.

Film In Focus: Machuca

Sunday, September 17---It is hard to portray the significance of key historical events without the passage of time. Only in retrospect does the true enormity of history unfolding take on a full dimension. Only with some distance do the true emotions come through in a way that stirs the soul and pricks the conscience. The above statements certainly apply to the Chilean film MACHUCA, considered a masterwork of contemporary Latin American cinema. Released in 2005, more than 30 years after the ev...

Samba Saturday Night

Sunday, September 17----After a full day of screenings that boasted a diverse program ranging from the South African Oscar winner TSOTSI to the Japanese samurai extravaganza THE HIDDEN BLADE to the French romantic comedy RUSSIAN DOLLS, Festival devotees headed to the Martha's Vineyard Airport for a night of samba music and dancing. The dance party was held at the Outerland Cafe, a legendary Vineyard nightspot (once known as The Hot Tin Roof) where such musical talents as James Taylor, Carly S...

Film In Profile: Iron Island

Saturday, September 16---For several decades, the American government has successfully demonized the country of Iran, referring to it as an "evil empire" as a member of the "axis of evil". The rhetoric has ratcheted up in recent months, as Iran attempts to take hold of its own destiny by producing nuclear power, and possibly nuclear weapons. But what do we really know about this ancient culture that is one of the most influential nations in the Middle East? What more can we know without trave...

Film In Focus: Jonestown--Life and Death of the Peoples Temple

Friday, September 15---One of the key human tragedies and human mysteries of the 1970s was the mass suicide of 900 followers of the Peoples Temple, a fundamentalist group that originated in San Francisco and eventually moved into refuge in Guyana. The group's charismatic leader, Jim Jones, was a true enigma....a spiritual leader of immense charisma who had an amazing hold over his followers. Why hundreds of them were willing to commit mass suicide on his orders is one of the mysteries explored...

Standing Room Only At Sold Out Festival Opener

Katharine Cornell Theater Thursday, September 14----It was standing room only at the Katharine Cornell Theater this evening, as the inaugural Martha's Vineyard International Film Festival kicked off a four day film celebration with its high wattage Opening Night Film, Michel Gondry's much anticipated THE SCIENCE OF SLEEP.

Film In Focus: La Moustache

Wednesday, September 13----The French can be credited for many things....romantic love, opulent architecture, delicious (and fattening) foods, and most of the "isms" of the last few centuries. In the middle of the 20th century, the "ism de jour" was existentialism, a world view that was both personal and communal in describing the human condition and man's place in the universe. With the help of such seminal figures as Jean Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, existentialism became a major liter...
